Rokeby Road upgrades coming in 2016
Council endorsed the Rokeby Road public realm upgrade at its meeting on Tuesday night.
The staged $3 million project will see a number of improvements to our iconic main street including:
- new lighting and banners
- improved street furniture
- upgrades to median strips, kerbing, bollards and planter boxes
- select raised car bays to allow for alfresco dining
- integration of power access for future community events.
Tenders will be called early in the new year and most works will be conducted at night to ensure minimal disruption for businesses.
More information about the project will be provided in due course. We look forward to delivering an upgraded Rokeby Road to the community.
